Network Seat Billing- Details provided later in the presentation

Network Seat Billing As required by AZNet II contract,  a method had to be adapted  and approved by TEGC to count the Network Seats.  A subcommittee was established to work on this task,  the following 4 categories were identified as potential options and recommendations presented. Options:  # of Active Ports on the LAN switches # of employees # of Personal Computers in use by each agency # of voice seats currently billed Option 4 was identified to be used for the first 90 days after transition. The subcommittee was task to due further financial analysis on Option 2 and present to TEGC within the first 90 days of the contract, for further discussion or consideration.

Active Ports on the LAN Switches Approach:  Obtain a current inventory of all state LAN switches, with active ports counts Deduct from the active port count the out of scope device connections: Servers,  printers, alarms, card readers, HVAC monitoring devices Challenge: Due to a large number of out of scope device connecting to the LAN Switches, it will be very difficult to validate and maintain an accurate count

Number of Employees Approach:   Deducted from the count employees on 2nd and 3rd shift employees with primary duties not requiring connection to the IT Network, I.e. Highway Landscape maintenance, Field Inspectors & others Other Class of FTE's  as identified by the subcommittee Agency to validate the list, included PON/SubPon information Challenge: Agency validation

Personal Computers in Use by Each Agency Approach: Obtain a  count of Personal computers by agency Agency to compile a list, included PON/SubPon information Challenge: No central repository for all Personal Computer inventory Agency inventories reflect devices in spare inventory,  in deployment phase,  in surplus phase Manual procedure has to be developed and implement by the contractor and  agencies to validate and maintain an accurate count
